STAND AND DELIVER! WATERLOO 1sts v SOUTHPORT 1sts IN THE FIRING LINE.

1 month ago By Graham Ellis

Because of pitch issues this prestige pre-season 'friendly' on Thursday will now be played at Altcar Rifle Range adjoining Hightown Station KO 7:15pm.

Get some in! Convene at the Hightown Hotel early doors. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/The+Hightown+Hotel/@53.5245971,-3.0663605,14z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xb2dfcc3f963c9217!8m2!3d53.5245971!4d-3.0576058

Liverpool bound trains from Southport every 15 minutes leaving from Chapel Street at 4:58, 5:13, 5:28, 5:43, 5:58, 6:13, 6:28. No alcohol allowed on board.

Coming by car? The range is located at Altcar Training Camp, Hightown, Merseyside L38 7JE. The Hotel is next to the station on the shore side.

Come see how preparations continue for the new season as a potent mix of new, old and emerging faces vie for the shirt putting in hard yards at training but above all in a great spirit throughout the camp on and off the pitch. Lets take this into Thursday evening and make it home from home on the range.

A big thank you to our hosts for ensuring the game goes ahead with the first team pitches at both clubs undergoing recovery following the summer heat wave. This promises to be a fascinating west Lancashire coast/north Merseyside derby, the first at First XV level in a lifetime and beyond.

Just a reminder that the new season officially kicks-off a week on Saturday with the 1s at Fleetwood, the 2s entertaining Fleetwood 2s and the 3s at West Park. Three tough games but when the going gets tough....
